December 2016 dates

Degree Congregations will be held between 6-9 December 2016.

The specific date and time of each Degree Congregation will only be confirmed at the end of October 2016, once it has been approved by the Senate of the University. Unfortunately we are unable to give any indication of dates and times before this time. Please note that the allocation of Schools does not follow a pattern, therefore we would strongly advise graduands and guests to only make travel or accommodation plans once their attendance and information is available.

Attending the right Degree Congregation

Once you have confirmed your attendance at a Degree Congregation you will be emailed a link to our Graduand information website in April. This website contains all of the information you will need to prepare for your Degree Congregation, and includes details of your gown hire, tickets, ceremony dates, times, locations and commonly asked questions regarding the Degree Congregation itself.

Checking the date and time

Once you receive your email linking to the Graduand information website we strongly advise all graduands to check the date and time of their Degree Congregation via MyBham. To check the specific date and time for your Degree Congregation please log on to the portal, click on the myProgress tab and then the Degree Congregations link. Select your programme of study, click Submit and the following screen will display the date and time of your Degree Congregation.
